Ben and Jerry’s Free Cone Day a Huge Success in Haight Ashbury, Despite Sit/Lie Violations

Tuesday, March 23rd, 2010

These little gutterpunks think they can just sit down on the sidewalk at the intersection of Haight and Ashbury and eat ice cream all day. Can you imagine?

Anyway, Ben and Jerry’s Free Cone Day 2010 is a huge success today, with the line running the length of four Victorian houses.

The line at Macy’s Union Square is much shorter, as per usual on FCD. Choose or lose.

Thanks Ben, thanks, Jerry!

Or just go for the cone, your choice.

Be aware that the B&J outlet at Haight and Ashbury can get a little crunchy and also quite a bit busy after school lets out. And without the (mostly harmless) sit/lie law on the books yet, look out for this kind of Nevius Nightmare:

Look at them there, they were just sitting / lying on the sidewalks back on Free Cone Day ’08. If I owned a house in the outer East Bay, well, my sensibilities would have been offended and my blood would have been boiling.

Anyway, observe proper Free Cone Day etiquette and…

See you there!

Proper Etiquette When Waiting in Line for Free Ben & Jerry’s Ice Cream

Wednesday, April 30th, 2008

What’s the first thing to do once you get a free ice cream cone on the birthday of Ben & Jerry’s? Eat it, of course.

But you might as well get back in line so that when you’re done eating you’ll be at the front and ready to choose another flavor. Some might take the time to finish their cones before queuing up to attempt to get some more, but carpe diem, you dig?

Your behavior might hack off the people behind you, but only slightly.  

The best way to pass the time waiting for free ice cream is eating free ice cream in an endless loop:

Speaking of free (or almost free) ice cream, Baskin Robins is having their 31 Cent Scoop Night today, April 30, 2008, starting at 5:00 PM. Sadly, not all BRs will offer this deal and you will be limited to buying only just ten cones.

(And there’s always frogurt from Tuttimelon, still having their temporary 99-cent special. If you swing that way)
